Hi guys, i am having a very strange problem that is driving me crazy.
I have a very simple samba setup
I am using version 3.5.10-0.107.el5
# cat /etc/samba/smb.conf
realm = MYDOMAIN.BIZ
security = ADS
idmap uid = 16777216-33554431
idmap gid = 16777216-33554431
path = /tmp/temp
read only = No
Inside /tmp/test i have the following tree:
# ls -laR /tmp/temp/
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 1024 Oct 11 10:35 .
drwxrwxrwt 5 root root 1024 Oct 11 10:42 ..
drwxr-xr-x 2 myuser root 1024 Oct 11 10:42 someFolder
drwxr-xr-x 2 myuser root 1024 Oct 11 10:42 .
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 1024 Oct 11 10:35 ..
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Oct 11 10:36 someFile
I can connect from windows 7 to the share just fine using myuser. So
now comes the question:
Why myuser can rename someFile if its owned by root:root and
permission is -rw-r--r-- ? (Though i can not change its contents). I
think this is related to myuser being the owner of the folder itself,
but i am not sure because of the behaviour in this other question:
Why if i set permission to -rw-r-----, now myuser can not rename the
file anymore ?
